What Services do Exeter Bookbinders Offer?

Exeter Bookbinders - Binding Services

Specialist areas

We specialise in the repair and restoration of old volumes, Bibles and documents. This ranges from reattaching loose pages, re-backing, new endpapers, and re-enforcing etc. right through to a full rebind.

Materials we work with

We work with paper, cloth and leather. For normal size volumes we use high-grade Morocco leather and larger volumes are normally covered in calfskin.

The other leathers we work with are pigskin, deerskin and lambskins.

Methods we use

It is important to bind to traditional methods and styles, using mainly Victorian tools and machines. All books are bound by hand and so will be very slightly different.

Work we undertake

Apart from the obvious - restoring antique books, we also undertake brand new bindings and provide numerous thesis bindings for students.

Even if you consider that your project cannot be achieved or you may think it will be too expensive, give as a call or email us to discuss it with us first - you will be pleasantly surprised..

Who are our clients?

Our clients and their specifications are extremely varied. In so much that we have bound documents that we have designed to be tamper proof, containing evidence for the Russian Judiciary right through to the binding of documents for one of the UK’s top geologists! Also undertaking work from individual Churches, Masonic Lodges, private individuals, book collectors and book dealers.
